KIRKUS REVIEW

A tense, action packed thriller, with the hero, Chris, catapulting into the atmosphere in a desperate effort to save earth from lethal rays which originate from the moon. Despite the trauma which the young Englishman has suffered in a previous rocket journey, he complies with his uncle's request to undertake the dangerous mission, only to find, once he is launched, that his death is preordained. Hugh Walter achieves remarkable intensity in this fantasy, limiting the range of time, place, action, and conceit, and endowing the radius of his fiction with the maximum excitement and atmosphere. Discriminatingly written.
